“You Are What You Eat” – HIPPOCRATES
Eskimo “The Man Who Eats Rawness”.
The Eskimos are the only people who did not know the function of the tribal healer because virtually no one was sick. Until they began to consume the products offered to them by the Americans, their traditional diet consisted almost exclusively of raw meat, raw fat and raw fish. They never complained about arthritis, asthma, heart disease or other chronic ailments.
The modern “civilized” diet consists mostly of cooked, processed and artificially purified products, there is no room for natural enzymes. Thus, the human body was forced to digest huge quantities of “dead” food that the modern man eats every day.
In order for the processing of enzyme-free digestive mass in the stomach to become possible, other parts of the body – for example, the brain, muscles, joints or nerves – are constantly taken away from the enzymes necessary for their normal functioning.
This should be the source of many ailments – from slight indigestion, constipation, to serious arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, lack of immunological immunity, adaptation to stress and depression. There are more and more neuroses, mental retardation and cancer.
Most enzymes come from the pancreas – an organ that must work excessively from the lack of natural enzymes in food. An interesting fact is that currently, the human species has the largest pancreas in nature relative to body weight. Dr. Howell claims that: “In relation to body weight, the human pancreas is more than twice as heavy as the pancreas of a cow”.
The Role Of Enzymes In Nutrition.
Western science knows perfectly well that enzymes are delicate compounds that are easily destroyed under the influence of high temperatures, moisture, oxidation, irradiation, and synthetic compounds. The enzymes are exposed to these factors during cooking, canning, refining, preserving with synthetic chemical ingredients and during pasteurization of foodstuffs. At temperatures higher than 55 ° C, all enzymes are disintegrating. As you know, the pasteurization temperature is 60ºC.
Fresh product is defined as “alive” only when its composition contains active enzymes. Doctors – Taoists describe this relationship of life contained in food as chee. Enzymatic chee is by far the most important nutrient for health. The supply of chee in each body is limited. The sooner it is used up, the sooner you can expect annihilation of the body and its end.
American farmers have noticed long time ago that pigs eating raw potatoes do not get fat, but boiled potatoes fattening them very quickly. Active enzymes in raw products play a truly important role in the digestive process. They release the body from the unpleasant effects of decay and fermentation of food leftovers. Also allow effective burning of calories, which prevents metabolic disturbances and deposition of fatty tissue.

Unsaturated fats are also beneficial. Many oily products on our market, such as evening primrose, are produced in outdated technology with the access of oxygen, which speeds up their rancidity and reduces the efficiency of operation.
These products, thanks to the richness of enzymes, support the digestion of foods, relieving the pancreas from excessive work in the digestion of “dead” foods. These enzymes stimulate normal metabolism, help detoxify and cleanse the body of toxins, cholesterol, triglycerides, and adipose tissue. It also prevents diseases of civilization and obesity.
